Macintosh statistical software

What statistics software for Macintosh computers (Macs) works in Mojave or is 64-bit compatible?

Updated November 27, 2018. See free and open-source Mac statistics software

Apple’s Mac system updates have left certain software behind. This list is to make it easier to figure out whether statistics software is (a) ready for OS 10.15 and beyond, (b) Mojave-safe — that is, OK with OS 10.14, and (c) signed, so you won’t see a scary “unidentified developer” message like the one below. If we leave out information, it’s because we don’t know. If you are a developer or user and want to update this list, please let us know!

Acastat and Clarity: Mojave safe, 64-bit, signed

DataDesk: 64-bit

Easy Chi-Square Calculator: Mojave safe, 64-bit, signed

Gauss: 64-bit

G*Power: Signed, 64-bit. Version 3.1.9.3 appears to be the most recent, and is compatible up to High Sierra.

PAST: Unsigned but 64-bit; have not tested on Mojave
